Jersey and Portsmouth and murder


1. English solicitors Dyer Burdett & Co (DBC) have set up a legal team to advise former residents of the Haut de la Garenne children's home on Jersey.

DBC is already representing 18 people who were allegedly physically and sexually abused whilst in the care of Portsmouth Corporation during the 1950s and 60s.

The firm is investigating reports of a link between the Portsmouth cases and Haut de la Garenne. (Two more 'punishment cellars' discovered at Jersey care home)

2. Police are investigating the disappearance of a young girl at Haut de la Garenne as a possible murder inquiry. An eyewitness told police the child “disappeared” after being hurt in an “act of violence” in the 1970s. (Two more 'punishment cellars' discovered at Jersey care home)

Jersey, Dutroux and cover-ups

Photo - Haut de la Garenne 1905 (First pictures inside 'Colditz' care home as police find secret ...)

In 1990, two part-time members of staff at the Blanche Pierre care home on Jersey alerted the authorities about child abuse.

In 1999, a confidential report detailed "gross acts of physical and psychological abuse" at the Blanche Pierre care home.

In 2000, alleged victims complained to the police.

Court proceedings began, but were later dropped. - Children's home in abuse claims

Marc Dutroux's lawyer, Xavier Magnee, said Dutroux, was part of a criminal network supplying the sex trade.

Magnee said Dutroux was a "small fish" working for a network with links to the police.

Magnee pointed out the failure of the police to process all the forensic samples discovered in a basement cellar in which Dutroux kept four of his captives.

Magnee said that some 6,000 hair samples found in the basement cellar where some of the victims were held had led to the discovery of 25 "unknown" DNA profiles.

"There were people in that cellar that are not now accused," said Magnee.

M. Magnee said prosecutors had ignored evidence that might have linked the ring to a Satanic cult called Abrasax, which is suspected of performing human sacrifices. - Dutroux says he abducted girls with police help - Europe, News ...

Roger Holland, from Jersey, was a convicted paedophile.

In 1992 Holland became a part-time policeman on Jersey.

Six years earlier, he had indecently assaulted a mentally backward 14-year-old girl.

He had admitted molesting a second child.

In 1995, he was promoted to the rank of vingtenier, the second most senior in the island's volunteer police force, which supplements the work of the full-time police. - Secrets and terror of Jersey care home

Marc Dutroux insisted that he was not a "lone predator" but part of a wider paedophile ring.

Dutroux described himself as a victim, a "puppet in a show trial" who had to be put away to "hide the truth" and serve the interests of "organised corruption".

Dutroux said only 10% of the case had been examined. He asked why independent-minded policemen had been removed from the investigating team. - Dutroux insists he was part of paedophile ring World news The ...

Child abuse at the Kincora boys' home


"MI5 ran a brothel in Church Street in Kensington throughout much of the 1950's and early 1960's for the use of visiting dignitaries, diplomats and intelligence officers.

"While for those too important to visit such an establishment certain discreet gentlemen were called upon to provide young female or male company directly to the VIP hotel bedroom." (http://66.102.9.104/search?q=cache:hr0jRE7eyewJ:www.spyschool.com/spybios/profumoj.htm+mi5+stephen-ward&hl=en)

The British security services have been determined to keep Northern Ireland as part of the United Kingdom and reportedly have been prepared to use dirty tricks to control the political leaders.

Reportedly the security services were prepared to allow child abuse to take place at the Kincora boys' home in Northern Ireland.

Kincora was a boys' home in East Belfast, run by Joseph Mains, Raymond Semple and William McGrath, who were reportedly fond of young boys. (Kincora Boys' Home - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

McGrath was also the leader of an extremist Protestant paramilitary organization.

Allegedly, "Kincora was run as a virtual gay brothel by loyalist leaders and MI5 . Its clientele who preyed for years on vulnerable young boys... included loyalist paramilitary leaders , unionist politicians , judges and public figures . MI5... used it as a blackmailers lever." (Michael stone, MI5 and Kincora - Irish Nationalism)

Allegedly, "Loyalists have long had links with Zionist gangsters and have received Israeli weapons. In at least one incident weapons were exchanged for intelligence material on British missile systems, and loyalists rely on Israeli-'Russian' mafiosi for supplies of ecstasy pills. Loyalists have also engaged in the smuggling of non-Whites into Eire in alliance with the 'Russian' mafia.

"Sexual perversion is also a disturbing undercurrent in Northern Ireland’s paramilitary netherworld... William McGrath, a leading loyalist, was imprisoned after sexually molesting children for years with the knowledge of British intelligence – to whom he was giving information – in the Kincora Boy’s Home. John McKeague, founder of the Red Hand Commando, was also a feared pederast". (Michael stone, MI5 and Kincora - Irish Nationalism)

Reportedly, in the 1970s, several newspapers claimed that the former UK Prime Minister Ted Heath, who was reported to be gay, was a regular visitor to Kincora Boys Home. However, references to this have been disappearing from the internet. (cached text )

In the book Who Framed Colin Wallace? (Who Framed Colin Wallace) by Paul Foot (Macmillan, London 1989), we learn about the Kincora boys' home scandal.

Allegedly:

1. Colin Wallace served in a special Ministry of Defence press unit in Northern Ireland which dealt in "psychological operations."

2. Wallace tried to alert the authorities about what was going on at Kincora.

3. McGrath was working for MI5; the Security Service ignored the plight of the boys at Kincora.

4. In 1973 MI5 set up a propaganda campaign named Clockwork Orange. The purpose of Clockwork Orange was to blackmail and control top political figures in Northern Ireland and Great Britain, including Harold Wilson and Edward Heath.

5. In October 1974, Wallace refused to take any further part in the Clockwork Orange operation. He was sacked and he moved to England.

The husband of a friend and colleague was found dead.

Wallace was accused of murder and sentenced to ten years' imprisonment.

On 30 January 1990, UK Armed Forces Minister, Archie Hamilton admitted that several key allegations made by Colin Wallace were true.

Jersey child abuse link to Islington, London



The above video showing Jersey has no connection to child abuse

Eileen Fairweather at the The Mail on Sunday has an excellent news story entitled 'I have known about Jersey paedophiles for 15 years,' says award-winning journalist.

Eileen Fairweather describes the links between child abuse in Islington in London and child abuse on the islands of Jersey and Guernsey. She also suggests possible cover-ups by top police and politicians.

According to the Mail on Sunday article:

1. About 15 years ago, Detective Constable Peter Cook uncovered a child sex ring, with victims in both Britain and Jersey.

Cook's police bosses barred Cook from alerting police abuse specialists in London. Inquiries by junior detectives were closed down by senior police officers.

The child abuse ring members included an aristocrat, clerics and a social services chief. Their friends included senior police officers.

Cook managed to meet people at the National Criminal-Intelligence Squad. Little happened.

2. Now, in February 2008, a child's remains have been found at a former children's home on Jersey. More than 200 children who lived at Haut de la Garenne have described sexual and physical torture dating back to the Sixties.

3. There are the links between the child abuse at care homes in Islington, North London, and the child abuse on Jersey.

14-year-old Jason Swift, killed in 1985 by a paedophile gang, is believed to have lived in Islington council's Conewood Street home.

Two sources claimed this.

Every one of Islington's 12 care homes included staff who were paedophiles, child pornographers or pimps.

Police secretly confirmed that several Islington workers were 'major operators in the supply of children for abuse and pornography'.

Islington children were taken to Jersey 'on unofficial visits'.

Government Minister Margaret Hodge, then council leader in Islington, denounced "gutter journalists" who supposedly bribed children to lie about abuse.

(The Right Honourable Margaret Eve, Lady Hodge, MBE (née Margaret Oppenheimer; born September 1944, Cairo) is a British politician and Labour Party Member of Parliament for Barking. She was the first Minister for Children appointed in a newly created post within the Department for Education and Skills in 2001 . She is presently a Minister of State in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.)

5. Jersey social worker Simon Bellwood was sacked in 2007 after speaking out.

Jersey health minister Stuart Syvret was sacked after publicising a suppressed report into abuse allegations.

6. In June 1991, police in Cambridgeshire raided the home of Neil Hocquart who abused children in Britain and Guernsey. Hocquart, along with a social worker from Jersey, supplied child pornography to a huge sex ring.

Hocquart, nee Foster, was abused while in care in Norfolk and was eventually 'befriended' by Captain H. Hocquart of Vale, in Guernsey.

Cambridgeshire police and a Scotland Yard squad raided Neil Hocquart's Swaffham Manor home in June 1991.

At nearby Ely they found his friend, Walter Clack, who was also reportedly involved with child pornography.

Police did not get a chance to properly interview these men. Hocquart died suddenly and Clack 'escaped with a £5,000 fine'.

Scotland Yard detectives related that they found at least "two or three" wills of older men who died of apparent heart attacks shortly after leaving everything to Neil Hocquart.

These deaths were never investigated.

7. Nicholas John Rabet, born on Jersey, was a friend of Hocquart's. Rabet became a childcare worker on Jersey.

Later, Rabet became deputy superintendent of islington council's home at 114 Grosvenor Avenue.

Rabet became a key supplier of children from Islington's care homes to paedophile rings.

Rabet and a colleague took children on trips to Jersey.

'Allegations mounted but nothing was done'.

Rabet befriended the widow of an American oil millionaire. This lady died after writing her will in Rabet's favour. Rabet inherited a property in Sussex, where he opened a children's activity centre. Children in Islington's care were regularly invited to stay there.

Hocquart and Walter Clack became "volunteers" at this activity centre.

Hocquart befriended one young boy called Shane (not his real name) who stayed at an islington care home.

Sussex police raided Rabet's children's centre and then contacted Shane, at his Islington children's home. Shane confirmed months of 'abuse'. Attempts to investigate further 'were thwarted by Islington Council'.

Islington 'falsely told Sussex officers it had no file material on Rabet or his alleged victim'.

The independent White inquiry into the abuse in Islington children's homes found that "at assistant director level . . . many confidential files were destroyed by mistake, although there is no evidence of conspiracy."

During the Rabet investigation, Islington refused to interview any other children in care or help Sussex police identify other children in Rabet's photos.

Police decided not to prosecute.

Shane told journalist Eileen Fairweather: "This goes right to the top. You have no idea how big this is."

Fairweather writes: "Third World police... succeeded where Britain's finest in Cambridgeshire, Sussex, London and Jersey had failed."

Rabet was arrested in Thailand in 2006 and charged with abusing 30 boys, some as young as six. Thai police believed he had abused at least 300.

Rabat was never tried. He died suddenly on 12 May 2006.

8. Two other Jersey-born social workers also worked in Islington.

One arranged sailing trips to Guernsey; the other sent children to Rabet's centre. Both were accused of abuse.

9. When Detective Constable Cook travelled to Guernsey, he met two brothers whom Hocquart 'delivered to a high-ranking, respected local man to rape'.

Reportedly no action was taken by senior police.

Bryn Estyn Boys' Home in North Wales

Bryn Estyn

For many years, children complained of physical and sexual abuse in North Wales care homes, including Bryn Estyn in Wrexham. (BBC News WALES Decades of silent suffering)

There were stories of MI5 involvement.

In the 1980s, North Wales police carried out an investigation which was later criticised as 'sluggish, shallow and inadequate'.

In March 1992, 16 people were arrested.

Four were convicted, three of sexual abuse.

In 1996, William Hague, as Welsh Secretary, set up a tribunal, under Sir Ronald Waterhouse, to study the North Wales child abuse scandal.

Allegations were collected from 650 witnesses, who accused 365 people of abusing them.

In February 2000, Waterhouse’s 'Lost in Care' report was published. It criticised social workers, children’s home staff, police and local councils for not taking allegations seriously and failing to properly investigate.

The North Wales inquiry led to 10 convictions.

Scallywag Magazine alleged that MI5 used to take foreign diplomats to the North Wales homes, give them boys to 'play' with, secretly filmed them as they buggered, abused and tortured boys then kept the tapes as evidence.

Over a dozen victims who complained of abuse by the paedophile ring 'have met suspicious deaths'." - North Wales paedophile ring, top people, the police and the security services

Reportedly, "The magazine alleged that the peer referred to in the article is Lord..... at the time of the offences ....... of the governing Conservative Party. Another regular participant in the activities at Bryn Clwyd was alleged by Scallywag to be ....... for years a leading mover and shaker in successive Conservative administrations.

"Scallywag alleged that ..... was a sadist with an abnormally large penis, who was particularly violent and without mercy in his treatment of the boys. The magazine alleged that on regular occasions his victims would end up in casualty wards. He was a leading political fixer and adviser to Margaret Thatcher....

"The former children connected with this empire of evil who died in mysterious circumstances may have been murdered by the British security services, the price of their silence their lives."

Now defunct magazine Scallywag covered events at Bryn Alyn in detail

In October 1997 (PUBLIC FIGURES NAMED IN PAEDOPHILE RING By Nick Davies 1997) the following appeared in The Guardian :

"Policemen, social workers and prominent public figures have been accused of belonging to a paedophile ring which indulged in a relentless campaign of physical and sexual abuse in children's homes in North Wales.

"The names of the alleged members of the ring have been given by witnesses in public sessions of the North Wales Child Abuse Tribunal, but they have been suppressed by the tribunal's chairman, Sir Ronald Waterhouse QC, who has threatened the media with High Court proceedings if they print them.

"The Guardian today publishes for the first time detailed evidence about the alleged ring, which is said to have been based in Wrexham, and to have infiltrated local children's homes over a 20 year period.

"Witnesses claim that members of the ring used their connections with police and social services to conceal their activities. All of the accused have denied the allegations.

"Those named to the tribunal include:

"A man who bears the same surname as a prominent Conservative supporter. Two witnesses have told the tribunal of a rich and powerful man who belonged to the alleged ring.

"The son of an influential peer who admitted to police that he had been having sex with an under-age boy from one of the homes. Despite his admission, he was never prosecuted.

"A powerful public official who has previously been cleared of abuse. Six witnesses have given separate accounts to the tribunal of his alleged rape of young boys. Another has reported him attending parties in Wrexham which were supplied with boys from a children's home.

"Two social workers and two police officers, one of whom was accused of abuse on four separate occasions and exonerated each time, another of whom has since been jailed in another part of the country for gross indecency with a child.

"More than a dozen other local men, including an executive with a local authority, a senior probation officer and a director of a major company."

On 2 March 2008, Wales on Sunday quoted the views of a former childrens' home boy.

Owen, now aged 46, told Wales on Sunday:

"You could smell the fear in Bryn Estyn."

"It’s in my head every single day, something I will never get out of my life.

"Children in care are easy targets – they have low self-esteem because of what they have gone through at home.

"Why weren’t these things looked at earlier? They were pushed away because they would bring embarrassment.

"It’s just the same thing happening over and over again. People have been hiding things for years.

"It’s exactly the same as Bryn Estyn – brushing things under the carpet, pretending it didn’t happen and kids not being able to tell anybody." (Bryn Estyn victims relive nightmare as Haut de la Garenne gives up ...)

Owen said care workers threatened him and other children that if they spoke about abuse they would not see their parents and no-one would believe their claims.

Another Bryn Estyn victim, Timothy Williams, was abused from the age of 12.

“Seeing what’s happened in Jersey brings memories back, absolutely. It saddens me. It angers me and I want to scream: ‘Why didn’t you listen?’

“Undoubtedly there is more still to come out. It’s the same as North Wales – this is only the tip of the iceberg, but it depends on how much they are willing to bring to the surface.”

Carl Denning, 49, is a Welsh victim of the Jersey sex abuse scandal.

Denning said two children were found hanged at Haut de la Garenne (in Jersey) after they were abused.

Carl, who was aged six when he went to the Channel island home in 1964 and spent nearly five years there, said (Bryn Estyn victims relive nightmare as Haut de la Garenne gives up ... ) :

"The suicides were never spoken of.

"No-one saw the police turn up to investigate them. If you asked, the staff would just say, ‘it’s been dealt with’. It was as if they had just been swept under the carpet...

"We used to hear the screaming and banging going on," said Mr Denning, who is married with four children.

"The memory of the sounds has haunted me ever since. We all suffered at the hands of these people, so we knew what the noises meant, but couldn’t do anything to help.

"One lad hanged himself in the dormitory during the night. He figured it was the only way to escape. The other lad also hanged himself rather than face it again....

"As a child you don’t realise fully what is going on," he said. "But if you look at it now, you realise that something was not right.

"There were things that we were made to do which at the time you didn’t realise they were wrong.

"For example, we were made to stand to attention with no clothes on and they would check us and you think was this for a medical reason or for something else?

"It has shocked me, when I have watched the news, it has sent shivers down my spine to think what was going on there...

"I don’t think my experience there made my life any easier.

"I didn’t cope very well after and sexually have always had problems. My first marriage failed."

"The authority put me there, they had me taken from my parents and it was their responsibility to make sure I was looked after properly, but nobody checked if I was OK.

"How would I seek compensation? At the end of the day I want justice for those people that are here and for those who may have gone.

"I may be one of the lucky ones, but there are some people who can’t cope with what happened to them and it is them that we need to come forward."

"If they wanted to speak to me to share experiences and for support I would be happy for them to contact me," he added.

The British security services, fascism and child abuse.



1. Maxwell Knight, the model for James Bond's boss M, served as Director of Intelligence of the British Fascists from 1924 to 1927.

Maxwell-Knight became Deputy Chief of Staff of the British Fascists before being recruited by MI5 in 1931.

(State Secrets, Tyler Kent, Winston Churchill, Roosevelt, President ... , Domville, Knight, Mosley, Blunt ... ,
http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/2WWfifthC.htm, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2004/10/12/nna12.xml )

2. Maxwell-Knight was a friend of Aleister Crowley.

From: 'One Girl's War, personal exploits in MI5's most secret section' by Joan Miller (1986) (http://www.bilderberg.org/sis.htm) we learn about Charles Henry Maxwell-Knight, formerly head of Britain's MI5 spy agency.

"His first wife Gladys, I learnt, died in the Overseas Club after some sort of occult misadventure in which the notorious Aleister Crowley was involved - certainly I'd never been willing to enquire too deeply into that incident.

"Black magic was not a subject that held any attraction for me. I accepted M's interest in it, hoping it was purely academic, but, for myself, I preferred to leave it well and truly alone: M understood this.

"When I tore up a photograph of Aleister Crowley which he had kept, as I believed it to be unlucky, he only laughed."

(Black magic, spies and child abuse)

Crowley worked for MI5. (The Great Beast)

Crowley has been described as a heroin-addicted Satan worshiper.

In the doctrine of Aleister Crowley from 'MAGICK in Theory and Practice, Crowley wrote:

"The bloody sacrifice, though more dangerous, is more efficacious; and for nearly all purposes human sacrifice is the best.

"The animal should therefore be killed within the Circle, or the Triangle, as the case may be, so that its energy cannot escape... For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim."
(Aliester Crowley--33 degree Mason Who Knew about Human Sacrifice)

3. Jeff Wells quotes the following:

"There is an international cult that believes that the path to illumination and spiritual liberation is through the rape, torture and sacrifice of children. The cult is highly organised and protected by a network of middle- and upper-class professionals, who are either cult members, or access the 'services' of the cult (eg child porn/prostitution, rendering them vulnerable to blackmail).

"The cult is modelled on Crowley's writings, as is evidenced by the internal pseudo-Masonic 'degree' structure, the existence of OTO-like 'chapters', and the doctrine of 'strength', 'master/slave' and ritualised rape."

4. From the book ‘The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party’ by Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams ( Homosexuality and the Nazi Party) we learn that the fascists are mainly homosexuals of a particular sort.

One hero of the German youth movement was Gerhard Rossbach. Described by historian Robert G. L. Waite as a "sadist, murderer and homosexual," Rossbach was "the most important single contributor of the pre-Hitler youth movement" (Waite,1969:210).

Konrad Heiden, 'a leading authority on Nazi history', wrote that the Nazi Freikorps "were breeding places of perversion" and that "Rossbach's troop...was especially proud" of being homosexual (Heiden:295). Rossbach's adjutant was Edmund Heines, who was known for his ability to procure boys for sex orgies.

In Treblinka, Steiner describes a Nazi administrator:

Max Bielas had a harem of little Jewish boys. He liked them young... They were dressed like little princes...Bielas had a little barracks built for them that looked like a doll's house...Bielas sought in Treblinka only the satisfaction of his homosexual instincts (Steiner:117f).

aangirfan: Hitler was Gay

5. In Great Britain, the pro-Nazis formed the Anglo-German Fellowship (AGF). The AGF was headed by British homosexuals Guy Francis de Money Burgess and Captain John Robert Macnamara.

British Historian John Costello relates how Burgess, Macnamara and J.H. Sharp, the Church of England's Arch- deacon for Southern Europe, took a trip to Germany to attend a Hitler Youth camp.

Costello writes that in the spring of 1936, the trio set off for the Rhineland, accompanied by Macnamara's friend Tom Wylie, a young official in the War Office. Ostensibly they were escorting a group of pro-fascist schoolboys to a Hitler Youth camp.

But from Burgess' uproariously bawdy account of how his companions discovered that the Hitlerjugend satisfied their sexual and political passions, the trip would have shocked their sponsors - the Foreign Relations Council of the Church of England (Costello: 300).

(Costello's book is 'Mask of Treachery: Spies, Lies, Buggery and Betrayal'. Costello describes Macnamara as a right-wing Conservative M.P. Burgess was a secret Communist devoted to destroying Hitler's Fascism.)

Maxwell-Knight

6. In the 1930s, plenty of members of MI5 and MI6 were fans of fascism and Hitler.

Hitler was seen by some of the spooks as being a potential ally in the fight against Communism.

According to Admiral Sir Barry Domville, head of Naval Intelligence, Hitler was "absolutely terrific."

Wing Commander Frederick Winterbottom, head of MI6's air section, reportedly hoped Britain and Germany would unite against Stalin's Russia.

MI5 agent Mark Papys, Earl of Cottenham, allegedly had sympathies with the Nazis.

When reports reached MI6 that Czechoslovakia was about to be invaded by Hitler, the reports were said to have been dismissed by the head of MI6, Admiral Sinclair, as "alarmist rumours…. put forward by Jews and Bolsheviks for their own ends."

British Fascist organisations such as Sir Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists (BUF), the Anglo-German Fellowship and The Link (which reportedly included the Duke of Westminster and the Duke of Bedford among its members) were allegedly 'left alone by MI5'.

Maxwell Knight served as Director of Intelligence of the British Fascists (BF) from 1924 to 1927.

MI5 agent, James Hughes, reportedly served as a Chief of Intelligence of the British Union of Fascists (BUF) from its formation in 1912 until it was banned in 1940.

Hughs 'played a leading role in establishing BUF secret cells (modelled on those of the German Nazi Party) in the British civil service, armed forces, key manufacturing and commercial enterprises and the trade union movement.'

7. John Hope, at Lobster Magazine November 1991, wrote about: Fascism, the Security Service and the Curious Careers of Maxwell Knight and James McGuirk Hughes.

(http://members.lycos.co.uk/mere_pseud_mag_ed/History/Hope1.htm)

Reportedly there is evidence of collusion between the British Fascists and top MI5 officers Charles Henry Maxwell Knight and James McGuirk Hughes.

Knight was primarily responsible for the surveillance of Britain's fascists.

Knight, in 1940, revealed the pro- Nazi activities of Tyler Kent and Anna Wolkoff. A number of fascists were then interned.

According to John Hope, at Lobster magazine, there was another side to Knight's encounter with fascism.

In 1924 Knight 'became a member of Britain's first fascist movement of any significance, the British Fascists (BF) and served as its Director of Intelligence from 1924 to 1927'.

Neil Francis-Hawkins, Director-General of Organization for the BUF, informed an Advisory Committee on Detainees in 1944, that Maxwell Knight "had been Director of Intelligence at the British Fascists".

Foreign Office papers show Knight's name on a list of the British Fascists' senior executives provided by two of the movement's members in September 1926 to Special Branch and Foreign Office officials.

Knight's position as the BF's Chief Intelligence officer appears in an intelligence report given to the Australian authorities in 1924, and discovered by the historian, Dr. Andrew Moore.

Knight joined the British Fascists in 1924, prior to his recruitment by the Security Service in April 1925.

There is evidence that Knight continued to be a fascist after he left the BF in 1927.

Francis-Hawkins claims that shortly after Knight left the BF he revealed his identity as an MI5 officer and offered assistance to the BF in its work for the "Clear Out the Reds Campaign".

Knight's testimony at the trial of Tyler Kent was that his sympathies for fascism began to wane in 1935.

Bernard Porter has suggested that Knight had served an "intelligence apprenticeship". His source was John Baker White, Assistant Director and then Director of the Economic League between 1926 and 1939. White may have recruited Knight for his private 'right wing' intelligence agency.

'The line separating the private intelligence agencies of the right from the state Security Services was distinctly blurred.'

White suggests in his autobiography that the right-wing groups had close links with the fascist movement.

Certain right wing groups, organised on military lines, conducted violent assaults on strikers and socialists.

Some of the earliest members of the British Fascists 'were drawn from the organizations of the conservative right'. Titled aristocrats and senior military personnel were members of the movement's Grand Council and Executive.

There is some evidence that the conservative right 'was more deeply involved in facilitating the growth and development of the BF than most studies indicate.'

TheDuke of Northumberland's paper, The Patriot, carried out the initial recruiting for the BF.

The BF 'became a beneficiary of the links that the conservative right had with the security apparatus of the state, in particular with MI5.'

The case of James McGuirk Hughes

Hughes was the British Union of Fascists' Chief of Intelligence in Department Z of the movement, from its formation in 1932 until it was banned in 1940.

Hughes reportedly disclosed his employment by MI5 to Mosley when he applied for the position.
Hughes had first served an apprenticeship with the British Empire Union's private intelligence and counter-espionage network.

Hughs and his agents infiltrated and sabotaged trade unions and left-wing groups.

In one of his reports Hughes wrote "that we have the complete confidence and help of Scotland Yard, and in fact have received payment from them. The Assistant Commissioner (Col. Carter) considers that we are the only efficient organization.......our relations with the provincial police continue to be good....We had placed under us a number of the plain cloths (sic) men of the Glasgow police...'.

When Hughs joined Mosley's fascist movement he was an established MI5 agent.

Hughes had the job of setting up the BUF's secret cells, modelled on those of the German Nazi party and the Italian Fascisti. A plan to set up such cells in the Civil Service, the Armed Forces, key manufacturing and commercial enterprises, and the trade union movement, began in 1933.

Hughs seemed happy to use the BUF for MI5's operations against the left.

Knight joined the BF before he was recruited to MI5. Hughes' work for the fascists appears 'to outweigh the information he relayed back to the Security Service.'

There is 'no evidence at all to show that either Knight or Hughes made any attempt to undermine or sabotage the movements to which they belonged - at least before the start of World War Two.'

'For MI5 to collude with fascism was merely a continuation and extension of existing practice.'

Torture and death of British children; the death of Gareth.

Gareth Myatt

You have heard about the Iraqi children being beaten and murdered by agents of the British government.

How many British children are being murdered in British institutions by dangerous child abusers?

In April 2004, 15-year-old Gareth Myatt died 'while being restrained by officers' in Rainsbrook Secure Training Centre in Northamptonshire.

Gareth was less than five feet tall.

There were no prosecution over the death of Gareth Myatt, the Crown Prosecution Service announced in December 2005.

Rainsbrook Secure Training Centre near Rugby is run by Rebound, part of security company Group 4.

Figures from the Home Office show that between 1 April 2002 and 31 March 2003 there were 104 custody deaths, compared to 70 the previous year.

In 2006, almost 600 people died in prisons, police cells and other units in the UK. (600 custody deaths in 2006, study finds UK news guardian.co.uk)

An unacceptable level of pain is being used to restrain children in secure custody, a report says.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4722652.stm

The independent investigation into the treatment of children in prison, led by Lord Carlile, found pain was used to enforce compliance.

That was "unacceptable" and may be illegal, the report said.

Yarl's Wood is run by Group-4

On 8 December 2003, in a Daily Mirror report, Nick Sommerlad wrote:

STAFF at Yarl's Wood boasted of using violence and intimidation on detainees while colleagues turned a blind eye to the brutality...

A senior officer warned recruits: "With control and restraint the idea is to cause pain."

Another said unpopular detainees were sometimes beaten up and any evidence destroyed...

One worker confessed to using excessive violence on detainees while a colleague moved a security camera so the attacks would not be captured on film.

Many officers are large, muscular, tattooed, ex-military men. Some relish their fights with detainees...

After a tussle in the corridor, the officer followed his colleagues to a segregation cell where there were no CCTV cameras. I was told the inmate "got a pasting" and was "splattered against the wall with a riot shield"...

A supervisor admitted some officers seemed to get a kick out of provoking detainees - giving them an excuse to use restraint techniques.

He said: "Control and restraint hurts. You will hurt them. During the training, treat us like a detainee. We expect to be hurt or you have not been trained right.

"We are doing it because we want to make them hurt. We are actually assaulting him. It is only because of the job we are doing we can do it." Under Blunkett's control and restrain powers - used by the prison service on unruly inmates - officers may use spontaneous violence on detainees if they are attacked.

Cover-up of the Jersey-Portsmouth link?


Cosham's Children's Cottage Homes in Portsmouth, across the water from Jersey, is at the centre of a child abuse scandal.

Two former child residents of Cosham's Children's Cottage Homes claim children were taken from their dormitories during the night and disappeared.

Reg Tugatt, 59, a former resident of Cosham's Children's Cottage Homes says he saw 'suspicious holes dug'.

Reg has given police a map showing holes dug in the vicinity of Cosham's Children's Cottage Homes - in a wood and near an orchard. (Police handed map of holes at child abuse scandal home / Second 'abuse' victim speaks out)

Reg said he was taken into care at the home in 1956, aged eight, and stayed there for three years.

A spokeswoman for Hampshire Police said: 'We have no plans to dig up any sites in Portsmouth and continue to hold the position that there are no links between allegations made in reference to the Children's Cottage Homes in Cosham and the ongoing investigation in Jersey.'

Les Cummings, 63, is campaigning for an apology from Portsmouth City Council for the abuse he claims to have at the hands of his foster father and at the Children's Cottage Homes.

A total of 21 men and women told detectives they suffered physical and sexual abuse as children at Children's Cottage Homes.

A 78-year-old woman from Devon was arrested on suspicion of indecent assault but when police passed the file to Crown Prosecution Service lawyers they decided there was not enough evidence to charge her.

Les Cummings went to police to ask them to look again at their earlier investigation into the claims of 21 men and women.

The Crown Prosecution Service examined allegations against the centre but decided not to prosecute.

Both Reg and Les claim that a number of children were taken from their dormitories during the night and disappeared.

The Police Chief, the Judge and Child Abuse


On 19 November 2007, Terence Grange resigned as Chief Constable of the Dyfed-Powys Police in Wales. ( Child abuse cover-up allegations over top policeman who quit ... / Child abuse cover-up allegations over top policeman who quit ...)

According to The Times, Grange was being investigated in connection with his force’s dismissal of child abuse claims against a judge.

This followed claims made by the judge’s ex-wife that the judge had given a child a sexually transmitted disease, viewed child pornography websites and misused transcripts from child abuse cases that he had presided over.

Grange was spokesman for the Association of Chief Police Officers on child protection issues.

Jason Swift

Jason Swift

In 1985, 14-year-old Jason Swift was killed by a child-abuse gang.

Jason is believed to have lived in Islington council's Conewood Street children's home. (Jersey child abuse link to Islington, London)

Sidney Cooke, Leslie Bailey, Robert Oliver, and Lennie Smith, were imprisoned in 1989 for the manslaughter of Jason Swift.

Cooke and his gang had sexually tortured and prostituted a number of boys.

The gang is believed to have killed at least nine children.[2]

Cooke was sentenced to 19 years in prison.

In 1998, Cooke was let out of prison eight years early.

There have been allegations that very powerful people have been involved in a child-abuse ring connected to Islington children's homes. ( Jersey child abuse link to Islington, London)

In 1982 Margaret Hodge (nee Oppenheimer) became Islington council leader.

She became a close friend of Tony Blair, who lived in Islington, a few doors away from Hodge.

In February 1990 Liz Davies and David Cofie, senior social workers, discovered evidence of sex abuse of children and reported it to a residents' meeting attended by Mrs Hodge.

In May 1990 Mr Cofie and Ms Davies were told by Lyn Cusack, assistant director of social services, to stop interviewing children about the abuse claims.

On 1 May 1997 Tony Blair moved from Islington to Downing Street.

In June 2003 Mrs Hodge was made minister for Children.
(Another minister under fire: call for Hodge to quit over child ...)

The Independent, 9 March 2008, has an article on missing children (Our children are missing: Most vulnerable youngsters are targeted) which tells us the following:

Sarah Benford, 14, disappeared from Welford House children's home in Northampton in April 2000.

She is still missing.

The UK's Police National Missing Persons Bureau has 1,418 "open cases" of missing children.

According to Police figures more than 100 children who should be in care have been missing for at least four years.

Many children who go missing are not reported to the police.

Member of parliament Helen Southworth says: "All figures on children missing from anywhere are estimates because, astonishingly, there is no requirement for data to be recorded or collected nationally."

Almost 1,000 children went missing from UK residential and foster care in 2007.

The number that went missing from care increased from 570 in 1997 to 950 in 2007.
